From Paris Saint-Germain to Crystal Palace, most football fans were shocked that Yohan Cabaye chose to leave the French champions to join the Selhurst Park club, but I believe it's a testament to just how good of a manager Alan Pardew is; it seems Cabaye thinks the same.

Pardew praise

After making his shock move to London from Paris, the midfielder had this to say about linking up again with Pardew: "I also know the gaffer and have worked with him before and I’m confident with him. I want to do my best for him because he’s made a big effort to get me to come here, as well as the Chairman, so I have to say a big thank you to both of them.”

The pair know each other well having worked together at Newcastle United, where Cabaye established himself as one of the Premier League's best playmakers before his transfer to French champions PSG.

Surprise deal a bargain

The £10million deal is a real coup for Palace and one that Cabaye is hoping can help Palace push towards a top eight finish in the Premier League next season.

“I wanted to come and play for Palace because there are some really strong players here. They finished very well last season and I think they can compete to get into the top eight'," Cabaye said.

With Palace's form since Pardew took over, fans will be optimistic that the team can realistically establish themselves as top-flight regulars in English football once again.
